Providing a Safe OH Medical During COVID-19
Safety Critical Medicals
Occupational Health surveillance during COVID-19
Since the beginning of 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic, Safewell’s Occupational Health team has had to adjust how they perform and manage their Health Surveillance and Safety-critical medicals. Whether at our offices in Royal Wootton Bassett or on Site for one of our customers
Some of the ways we do this are by sending our customers a copy of our OH risk assessment, so they know what to expect from us and what we expect from them in return, i.e. a suitable room with good ventilation and accessible windows, a room that can accommodate at least the 2-metre social distancing rule, that their staff has access to face coverings whilst having their medical (both Occupational health technician and client will be required to wear a covering during the medical).
Other requirements are as follows:
- All equipment is sanitised before and after each medical.
- Hand sanitiser is readily available.
- Pre-medical Covid questionnaires are completed and returned to us.
- Request customers’ risk assessment before attending the site.
- To only liaise with main contact and those who require a medical.
- Technicians to wear face-covering and PPE.
These are just some of our requirements and how we help to keep your employees safe and minimise risks along with our own safety. For a full breakdown please click the link for our Risk Assessment.
